9 Truths & a Lie

I had a lot of fun with the Who the Heck is this Becks Davis Chick? post a while back and I thought I’d do something a little different this time. I’ve listed 10 things about me, 9 of them are the truth and one is a lie. A blatant lie! Or maybe it’s just a take on the truth.

Which is which?

  1. I once ran a blind pig. I was underage at the time.
  2. I rode a bicycle from the Twin Cities to Chicago. It took 6 days.
  3. My college sweetheart's name was Chip. People would ask me if I was Dale.
  4. For many years I thought I would die on April 2nd. Yeah, it’s coming up.
  5. I lived 3 blocks away from Jeffrey Dahmer. People I knew warned others about him.
  6. I named my previous cat Slash so that my Guns & Roses loving friends would accept her. (And not get her drunk.)
  7. I lived in a building that also housed a one-armed prostitute.
  8. While I was on a first date I was asked to go to Paris a few hours later. I didn't go.
  9. The thing that brought my husband and me together was a fight about brat pack films.
  10. I’ve kissed Billy Joel. It was OK.

I can't believe that 9 of those statements are true either. I've had a shocking life.

So, which is the lie? Let me know 2 things in the comments: which one is the lie and which one you’d like me to write about. I can’t guarantee where this is going but I’ll do what I can. I mean, I can’t really write about the lie. Or can I?

Oh, and if you happen to know which ones are true, don't share it with the peanut gallery! I'm really curious to see which one people think is the lie.

Find out which one is the lie.

um, the billy joel comment is a lie? I vote for the prostitute story :P, or no wait, why did you think you would die on april 2 ?

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermirauncut

I would love to hear why you kissed Billy Joel, but I fear that is the lie.

If it is, tell us about Jeffrey Dahmer.

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBrad

I'd like to hear more about a 6 day bike ride to Chicago. I hope that's not the lie!

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

Mira and Brad got there first, so I'm the third MovieMaven who can't imagine you kissed the piano man . . . or would want to.

In any event, I'd avidly read, recommend and comment on your riff about a first-date invite to visit the City of Light. ("What kind of woman do you think I am?") We didn't know you went out with Dodi Fayed or someone equally ostentatious . . . so spill it!

(Actually, that gem is my runner-up fib pick . . . but I do hope it happened.)

I know that #10 is a lie! I happen to also know that Billy Joel is an exceptional kisser!

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTom Nixon

Are you absolutely sure that the "Go to Paris" comment was literal? In some circles, "Want to go to Paris" is a euphemism for a MMF three-way o.O


March 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterprimesuspect

LOL! And how would you know that?

I can't really answer that without giving anything away, can I? ;-)

March 30, 2011 | Registered CommenterBecks Davis

I believe the lie is number two, because it's the most likely of normal people. Obviously Becks, you are exceptional.

I want to hear about the genesis of Slash's name.

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHubert / GAM

I want to hear about all of them, even the lie. Well, except for the Chip bit. I could take that or leave it. :)

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHadi

Argghh! Based on our conversations and your adventurous life I'm not sure what to think, the whole list seems possible. That said you don't strike me as a Billy Joel fan so if I have to pick, I say that is the lie. ;-)

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKatie_Did8

I want to hear more about living in the same building as the one arm prostitute. I bet there's a great story around that so I hope it's not the lie. I can see all of them being true, so I'm picking 3, perhaps because I'm truly curious to hear about all of the others.

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersteve f

I'd like to hear about the blind pig.

Chip is a lie. Who would date a guy named after a food group?

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKevin

I frankly have no idea. But I do gather that you have a serious midwestern pedigree and have probably lived in other parts of this here region. So I'm inclined to believe No. 2 and even No. 5. And I'd love to hear about the blind pig and Monsieur Dahmer.

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSven Gustafson

I'm guessing the story about the cat being named Slash is the lie - everything else is too good, so I'm thinking it has to be the mundane one! And I love me some Billy Joel, so I want to hear the story about how you kissed him! (Well...not HOW...maybe just why.)

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKate Storey

I am going to be SO jealous if you kissed the piano man, so I'm guessing that's the lie.

I want to know about living by Jeffrey Dahmer. That's got to be a good story.

P.S. I'm pretty sure you have the most exciting life ever!

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLaurenWeber84

I would say Billy Joel.. it would be less than ok.. you'd think its gross..

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBryan Willmert

Not true - "I kissed Billy Joel"

All of the stories are intriguing - fill us in on the bicycle ride from the Twin Cities to Chicago.

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCharlie Z

Okay I had to take a randomizer to this one- I vote #7. *chuckle* I can't wait to read these tales!

March 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLisa Treece

I'd like to hear more about the blind pig. As for the lie...maybe that you would die on April 2nd?

March 31, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDebbie Bourgois

I just wanted to drop by and make sure you're still alive.
